iC1 cultivates scientific research, both fundamental and applied, with a strong emphasis on the fields of theoretical physics and computational physics. Due to its university character, it also carries out teaching tasks by developing research focused on basic and interdisciplinary aspects of Theoretical Physics, studying the nature that surrounds us through mathematical and computational tools.

Symmetries play a fundamental role in Physics, and more specifically in Quantum Physics. It is well known that symmetries lead to degeneracy and to conserved currents in closed quantum systems (meaning that they do not interact with an environment). In the more realistic scenario of Open Quantum Systems (meaning that the quantum system does interact […]
